Reinette Rouge Etoile is a very pretty traditional apple, still grown widely across the low countries and northern France. It was first described in 1830 and is probably much older. Etoile, which means “starry” may refer to flecks or lenticels which cover the red skin like little stars. The apples are ripe towards the end of September and can be kept for a couple of months. The white flesh is sometimes tinged with pink. It is firm and slightly dry, and has an intriguing, intense, and unique raspberry flavor with balanced levels of sweetness and acidity. It is generally used as an eating apple. Reinette Rouge Etoile apples are medium in size and have a round to conical shape. The vigorous Reinette Rouge Etoile tree will grow well on sandy soil. It crops heavily and biennially. The tree also has good resistance to diseases such as scab and mildew.
